SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jade Signature, Miami’s most architecturally extraordinary oceanfront address, continues to be a dominant force on the awards circuit, garnering a new set of top accolades for architecture, design and development.
The ultra-high-end-condominium in Sunny Isles Beach, which was created by Pritzker Prize-winning firm Herzog & de Meuron and developed under the leadership of husband-and-wife team Edgardo and Ana Cristina Defortuna of Fortune International Group, won the coveted “Best of Show” award in the 2018 Florida’s Best Awards, presented by the Builder’s Association of South Florida (BASF). The distinguished honor was the peak of a clean sweep for the condominium, which additionally received four first-place victories in the “High Rise Product for Sale, $5,000,001 and Over” category: Builder’s Overall, Architecture, Interior Design, and Landscape Design.
The Florida's BEST Awards celebrate professionals from leading industries, including developers, contractors, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, marketing specialists, mortgage and real estate brokers. Entries are judged by top industry professionals. The awards gala, which had nearly 600 luminaries and regional leaders in attendance, took place on Oct. 13 at Jungle Island in Miami.
“To say we are proud is an understatement, and we thank the Builders Association of South Florida for this tremendous honor,” said Edgardo Defortuna, President and CEO of Fortune International Group. “To receive this level of acclaim from our peers is overwhelming, and it is a privilege to know that our vision is so deeply admired industry-wide.”
From the onset, Jade Signature, which opened in March of this year, has been an architectural tour de force, garnering high praise from international press and luxury homebuyers alike. At the start of the season, the property won a pair of five-star awards in the Americas Property Award competition: Best Residential High-rise Development, Florida and Best Residential High-rise Architecture, Florida -- as well as a top honor in the Interior Design Private Residence category for Florida. Jade Signature is also a finalist in South Florida Business Journal’s 2018 Structures Awards for Best Architecture and Design.
Nearly sold out, the tower, which features designs by PYR, led by Pierre-Yves Rochon in Paris, and landscaping by Raymond Jungles, has a limited assemblage of residences remaining among its most luxurious units. Known as “The Collection,” the portfolio is a compilation of two-story Sky Villas and penthouses, ranging from $12.9 million to $29.5 million. The Sky Villas offer stunning features, such as flow-through views, expansive terraces, private elevators, smart technology, service quarters and PYR-designed bathroom cabinetry. The two full-floor penthouses boast all of these world-class features as well as a private pool, gym and 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Water and the Miami skyline. Additional offerings include three- to five-bedroom residences, with prices starting at $4.3 million.
